Con

astrology is not a science.I would want my opponent to speak up first, on this topic.
Zaradi

Pro

Fair enough. As I'm affirming the resolution, I'll have the BOP.

First off, since my opponent did not define any terms, I shall do so.
Science, according to Merriam-Webster's dictionary, is something (as a sport or technique) that may be studied or learned like systematized knowledge [1]

So, according to the definition, as long as we can study or learn from that thing, it ought to be considered a science.

Astrology, according to Merriam-Webster's dictionary, is the divination of the supposed influences of the stars and planets on human affairs and terrestrial events by their positions and aspects [2]

This is something that we can learn from and study. So, by definition, astrology is a science.
Time for con to respond.
